96XP gauge removal; crossing fuel hoses
anyone know how to remove the gauges on a 96XP? mine are fogging up and i wanted to have a look at the to see about getting a better seal. They are nice and clear for the first 10 minutes of riding, then cloud up.
Neither of my manuals gives any indication of how to remove them.
Also, I have to laugh at myself. My 94xp's fuel baffle gave up last year and I ordered a new one last Fall. Never got around to installing it and I've been busy my new to me GTX and 96xp to ride the 94 much. Anyway, I finally got around to changing the thing out last week and took it out and it kept flooding out. I finally got it to run by having the fuel control knob halfway between off and on. Guess I crossed a few hoses What a ditz. Last time I changed it out, I had no such issues. I must have been a little careless this time around. ( I thought i labeled the hoses right!?) HA!

if your gauges are fogging up, they will stop working shortly. there really isn't much you can do to stop it. i tried fixing mine but they went out shortly after that. i drilled a tiny hole in the cover to allow the moisture to escape and re-sealed the gauge. to remove the gauges, you need to unscrew the retaining nut on the back of the gauge. there is an access door on the underside of the hood. you may need to remove the top cover on the hood as well, but i can't remember.
it will be tough to get your hands in there to loosen the nut, but i made up a special wrench to get in there. not sure if you can buy one or not.

well, turns out the hoses are connected correctly on the '94. I guess i'll revert back to the old baffle and see if that solves the problem.
JayZ - yea, what a PITA to get these gauges out! Grrrr
